That's a CPS arcade game.  Generally those have not been hacked much.

Wasn't the transport from one truck to another thoroughly buggy in the original?

Fixing some of the hit detection (i.e. so an enemy can't practically stomp you to death) might be useful too.

I remember my friend Adrian telling me that one time he had fucked some chick at a party and I guess they both eventually passed out together. When he woke up he realized that the girl had puked in his hair while they were asleep. LMAO He said it was on a farm somewhere and when he realized what had happened he ran straight outside and dunked his head in a horse trough (it's like a little tub that horses drink out of).

*sigh* Good times...
It doesn't sound like good times.  It sounds like terrible times, where reckless behavior puts innocent lives at risk.  (Or were you being sarcastic?)

Gaming Discussion / Re: What should I try out? MUGEN or Project M?

What do you guys think is a more entertaining fighting game. MUGEN or Project M?
For those who are unaware MUGEN is a 2D-fighting game where anyone can create and upload custom content like fighters/stages/etc. so one can have fights like Ronald McDonald vs. Godzilla.

Project M is a mod of Super Smash Bros. Brawl (I don't know how they did it) that allows anyone to create custom characters.
They are two very different games.  As mentioned, Project M doesn't really have custom characters created by "anyone" – there's a very tiny number of extra characters, and the whole thing has been very meticulously balanced and tweaked for the hardcore Smash Bros community (or at least that's what I understand they're aiming for).  That said, in the end it's still Smash Bros and if you've already played it to death I can't really see the appeal.

MUGEN is just a whacking huge hot mess.  You can probably get just as much enjoyment out of watching the Youtube vids.  (There's a pretty popular thing on Twitch these days called SaltyBet that lets people bet on random MUGEN matches.)  Yes, there are a lot of characters, but there's definitely a huge variation in quality and pretty much nothing has ever been done to ensure any kind of balance – much entertainment value can be found in just watching the overpowered broken characters go to town.

I hope Card Sagas Wars still gets released one day; it's a MUGEN derivative, but considerable care seems to be going into it.

In the meantime, why not take a look at Skullgirls? Everyone seems to appreciate that one.

I grow so weary of tales along the lines of "I drank so much that I puked all over the kitchen and woke up in the bathroom in my underwear! IT WAS AWESOME YEAH! LET'S DO IT AGAIN!"

Well, maybe he was hacked out of the version you were playing for weird censorship reasons.

It has it all: top-down 4-directional gameplay, high difficulty, like pac-man, some damn creature green, and confusing rules.

The Emperor's New Groove is kind of nifty, come to think of it, though it's also pretty short – you can kind of tell that they switched gears at some point well after they got started (as Sting could easily attest).

I hear you can swap out the soundtrack with the arrangements from some of the orchestral albums for an even better experience.

I really should play those one of these days.

It would be cool if that Korean version of Ys II for DOS ever got translated, but I guess that's not happening.

I don't need to get drunk to behave obnoxiously!

Eh, they've all been kicking around for so long that it doesn't really feel like any of them stand out anymore.  Fantasia, I suppose.  And its sequel.

I couldn't stand watching The Lion King more than once.  Just kind of grated on me.

I'd like to see Tangled one of these days.  Lots of fans of that one.

I'm curious to figure out how to play Warcraft II, Age of Empires II, and Baldur's Gate II on my Win7 machine.
Obscure games can definitely be a problem, but uncountable multitudes have been swarming over those games for decades and there are almost certainly comprehensive guides out there regarding running them under Windows 8.

If you have more money than patience, Baldur's Gate II is available for purchase in an "Enhanced Edition" which is almost certainly a snap to get running.  Age of Empires II also has an HD edition (though I seem to recall reading that it is actually pretty easy to replicate with the original version of the game and some freely-available patches).

By the way, will you be making a new Continue screen?  (So bland, the Continue screen.)

I am definitely interested in this. There just are no real quality SMB2 hacks that I've found.
Legend of the Blob Bros 2 is pretty neat, especially some of the later levels.  (Note that you will, at one point, have to balance a mushroom block on a cloud.  Apparently that works in the original game, but as I was completely oblivious to that, I thought the game was broken at first.)

I was waiting for someone to link to the Introduction Topic.  But that seemed kind of presumptuous.

I thinks is a video feel like the opening

You can see it in this video

look at 8:21  ;)
If you were planning on linking to something, you forgot to do so.

If you are thinking of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ntxw_gT3yEk (at 8:21), that is definitely not full motion video and there is no reason the developers would have ever made it as full motion video, considering it is a static image and scrolling text.  What exactly would you want to change?

If you're particularly looking for things to fix, the ending has a weird bug where it seems like Wario's sprite is mirrored incorrectly when he faces the screen and gives a thumbs-up.

I sent you a message a long, long time ago about two little bugs I found in Live-A-Live, but I never even received acknowledgement.   At the time I figured that you were probably done with the project and/or had a perfectly reasonable policy of not replying to such things. :-\

Alas, I can find no trace of the message at the moment.  I believe one was a line near the end of the medieval chapter that ended with "longer Oersted" where one or two of the words was in the wrong font, though it later occurred to me that might have just been a stylistic choice.  The other I think was the bad ending where
you kill off Oersted after the final boss fight instead of proceeding to the boss rush
and one of the lines came out garbled.  I might still have the screenshot.

ETA: Bingo!

I also took this one screenshot during the credits where there was a bit of garbage on the screen, but it's kind of hard to miss.

Do the sprites look acceptable?
Well, that's entirely up to you, now isn't it?  ;D I think it looks pretty nice.

I tried that a little but it seems quite random, if I change one pixel to another color it may change other pixels surrounding it.
Maybe the game is hard-coded such that it looks at one particular pixel within the tile to decide which color is supposed to be the background?

The woman is obviously insane. What does she expect to gain/accomplish from this?
She got attention.  The much better question is, why is she getting attention?

Why not just send a news crew to the local homeless shelter and give a report on the ramblings of the mentally unbalanced?  (Which is not to say that all homeless people are mentally unbalanced; just sayin', that'd be a good place to look for someone interested in suing ever homosexual or something.)
